A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, for the first time in a very ling time we stayed in almost the entire weekend.  we stepped out twice once for a run to the store for some Hound Chow Saturday, and then yesterday to Mass and a quick breakfast then home again.  No Thrifting, no running around no9 nothing - just hanging about around the house.  In all the hanging out I got a little stitching done....... here's where Santa's Villages stands.....

... I can;t get over how much this house reminds me of the Alamo at this point....  I changed up the floss on the pine trees to reflect the pine change I made at the beginning from a DMC dark green to CC "Steamed Spinach."  The lighter green floss is also a CC, "Jolly Holly."

Here on the east coast, it is in the 20's today! Brrr.... for this southerner!
The good news is that it's made me stay inside and stitch by the fire which is good for about a day and then I need warm weather. Your Christmas piece is looking festive.

The village is looking really good! You are smart not to plan too many to work on. It takes a lot of the stress off.

Sometimes that most restful week-ends are the ones you spend lots of time at home. Love the new stitching!!

Arlene Grimm said...

Sounds like a lovely homey weekend. I like the colors you are using!!

Margaret said...

It was a homebound weekend here too (although more because of the weather than by personal inclination!) Santa's village looks amazing.

Beautiful stitching progress.

I enjoy going out but I also enjoy being a homebody sometimes. There's always stitching and books to occupy me.

I can definitely see the Alamo in that house. A long weekend in is such a nice luxury. A snow day tomorrow will hopefully allow a lot of stitching for me this weekend. Of course it also means a lot of shoveling.

How nice it is to see your progress on this work. I bought the series and haven't yet started. It may be a project for the summer of '16!
